Class Dismissed: The 401 Graduation Show

Dust off those caps and gowns... It's Harold Graduation Time!!!

So who the heck is Harold? More accurately the question should be... what the heck is a Harold?

The Harold is perhaps the best know style of long form improv. It starts with an audience suggestion, then improvisers weave together scenes, characters and group games to create a seamless piece. It can be bizarre and magical, baffling and amazing... it definitely needs to be seen.

The Push Comedy Theater's 401 students take the Harold head on! Don't miss it

The Pushers are Virginia's premiere sketch and improv comedy group. For nearly ten years they have thrilled (and shocked) audiences with their wild antics both on and off stage. The group puts on a racy, high-octane, energetic show that is guaranteed to have audiences howling with laughter. In November of 2014, they opened The Push Comedy Theater, located in the Norfolk Arts District.

In 2013 The Pushers' Off-Broadway musical Cuff Me: The Unauthorized Fifty Shades of Grey Musical Parody debuted in New York City. It ran for over a year in both New York and Chicago. A third production is currently touring the country.

The Pushers have appeared at both The Charleston Comedy Festival and The North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival. In New York, they have performed at The People's Improv Theater, The Upright Citizen's Brigade and at The Kraine Theater in New York's East Village.

Here in Hampton Roads the group have performed most notably at The Jewish Mother, The NorVa and The Virginia Beach Funnybone.
